Singer Ray J was charged with 10 counts including sexual battery on Monday after allegedly causing a disturbance in May at a swanky Beverly Hills hotel.
The 33-year-old singer was arrested on May 30 for battery, trespassing, vandalism, and resisting arrest after causing a ruckus in a bar at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
Ray J, whose real name is William Ray Norwood Jr, reportedly made contact with a woman’s booty during the incident but police initially ruled it “incidental” contact.
But Los Angeles prosecutors in Los Angeles charged Ray J with sexual battery for the contact.
The singer allegedly was at a hotel bar when he got a little rowdy and brushed up against a woman’s derriere and was ordered to leave.
The singer reportedly became aggressive in the valet area and hotel security made a citizen’s arrest.
Officers with the Beverly Hills Police Department took him into custody and Ray J allegedly spat on an officer, which prompted the battery charge.
The singer, who is infamous for starring in a sex tape with Kim Kardashian, also allegedly kicked out a window of a police car after he was handcuffed.
You’ll love Ray J’s explanation for kicking out the window glass. He said that he was “claustrophobic”. Good one!
Prosecutors charged him with four counts of resisting arrest, three counts of assault and battery, two counts of vandalism and one count of sexual battery.
All the charges were misdemeanors.
Ray J is the brother of 35-year-old singer and actress Brandy Norwood who starred in the sitcom “Moesha”.
